Ascent Trip Report

Exit HW 11 (HW 11 now bypasses Sundridge) at Sundridge and take old HW 11 bypassing most of the town. Turn right onto Union Road and then left onto Forest Lake Road. Follow Forest Lake Road for 8.7 km and then turn right onto Paisley Road. Follow Paisley Road for 10.8 km (turn right at 9.3 km) to an open area where you can park on the shoulders of the road. Just beyond the parking area is the ATV road turnoff on the right. The area around the Parry Sound District High Point is marked with "Organized Hunt Camp Area - Please Respect Our Boundary" signs so you may want to seek permission with the owners (if you can find their contact information) before going AND definitely avoid hiking to the peak during hunting season (the fall).

Hike up the road for 1.4 km until reaching a gate. Beyond the gate is the Hunting property. 600 meters beyond the gate up the road is the best spot to begin the short 400 meter bushwhack to the deciduous treed summit of the Parry Sound District High Point. The highest point appears to be on a slight ridge just south from the OBM spot height.
